1670. Skinny Maude

Maude was skinny. She was, as her friend Gabriella said, “in need of a good pasture”. It’s not that she was a cow! Of course not; it’s just a metaphor. She was in need of being fattened up in a verdant meadow.

Maude was not worried. She said she was eating well and sleeping well. A lot of people would give a fortune to have her physique. As Maude said to her friend Gabriella, “Some people would die to be as skinny as me.”

And she did.

I delight in having my dull life coloured by your intelligent perceptions, your wit, and your vivacity.
